GLoGtober #4: Swirling Rainbow Vortices

    In accordance with the post-a-day challenge by SunderedWorldDM, whose dreams bore the Orbseeker and whose deeds send the world shuddering.

When the technicolor norns of Kulwosyf were cleaved from the bright waxes of his cave, the first thing they told him was a warning. They warned that their gifts necessitated a fall, that the devil could not bear for the god to avail himself of prophecy without pain. This was before the Jur Concordant, and even a god feared the president of Hell.

The norns served Kulwosyf well, but when their sight was needed most their vision grew grey and hazy. When all seemed right, swirling rainbow vertices came down from the outer Heavens to assail gods.

Miscolored Chaos HD 7. Armor as chain. DR 3. Attack (+5 to hit, 1d8 damage and 1d4 charisma) OR whirlwind (1dX automatic damage to everyone around, where X is the number of colors drained). 

  • Form like a formless fog of color, or like a man-- never a woman
  • Purpose to thwart fate, secondarily to connect the impressionable with demons prepared to make Faustian bargains. When scried or divined upon, the diviner takes 1 charisma damage per round.
  • Drain one object or extremity per turn, taking its color into part of the Chaos's body, which then glows that particular shade. Touching that part of the Chaos with an opposite-colored item annihilates that part of the Chaos.

  1. I had to read through the opening paragraph like 3 times to wrap my head around the intricacies lore, and even then I have so many questions! That's a compliment! It fires my imagination HARD... what is the Jur Concordant? Why were the norns made of wax? Why does Hell have a president and not a dictator or despot? The monster is similarly inspiring- I love the color-eating mechanic, it makes for super interesting combat, especially if it can't be combated otherwise! The players will have to figure it out on the fly. A wonderful entry!
